Sapporo, Hokkaido Cuisine and Sightseeing Tour
This is our recommended way to sample the sights and flavors of the city while using your Sapporo Gourmet Coupon app to do it all on a budget! We’ve loaded the route with all the best restaurants and cafes in the city!
Start Odori Station
Oiso, Nijo Fish Market
Nijo Fish Market is the place to go for fresh seafood served over rice and other culinary delights. Among the establishments here, Oiso is known for its incredible sea urchin, so it’s our pick of the market. It opens at 7 am, so keep that in mind if you are looking to start your day with a feast!
Sapporo TV Tower
The Sapporo TV Tower is the tourist attraction the city is known for. Use a coupon for discounted entry, then head up 90 m to the observation deck to get a sweeping view that extends from Odori Park all the way to the Sea of Japan when the weather is clear.
TEASIGN TAPIOCA & TEA BAR
This shop is so popular that people line up for a chance to get in and try their famous bubble tea! We recommend the Brown Sugar Tapioca Latte, which is great to sip on while you walk!
Hokkaido University / The Hokkaido University Museum
Admission is free and there are so many things to check out, like the Avenue of the Poplars, the Western-style pavilion and the statue of Dr. William S. Clark. We recommend grabbing a map from the Elm Forest Information Center to the left of the main gate then taking a walk through campus.
Ramen Yoshiyama Shoten, Sapporo Ramen Kyowakoku branch
Head to Ramen Yoshiyama Shoten in Sapporo Ramen Kyowakoku to experience ramen with a rich and deep, yet clean flavor. People from across Japan love the Roasted Sesame Ramen, so be sure to give it a try. When you order, present your coupon for a free soft-boiled egg.

Genghis Khan Shepard’s Shop Itadakimasu
The proprietor of this store became a shepherd in order to open this restaurant that specializes in “Genghis Khan” lamb. Their ranch raises the purebred Suffolk lamb served here.
